I meant Emacs, the software, not just its binary form.  Forget the
binaries; you and Lars are protesting a startup check that critical
packages like GnuTLS are not out of date.  I'm saying that's a
convenience I think we should impose on our users at the cost of a
single y/n/never_bug_me_again prompt.  I can't think of a better way to
notify them that an Emacs component is out of date and possibly
compromising their security.  I believe it's our responsibility to do
